Hans Avis focuses on the treatment of patients suffering from Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH). Those who suffer from this hereditary condition – irrespective of their life style – have an extreme high concentration of cholesterol in their blood. For his PhD thesis, Avis examines whether the use of so-called statins at a young age reduces the chance of cardiovascular disease at a later age, and if such treatment is safe.
